Re: Jib furler is hard to furl since putting up new sail...ideas?

The last time I experienced a nearly "impossible to furl" headsail; I slowly figured out that the problem was that I had 'reeved the furling line through the ratchet block by the cockpit in the wrong direction.' Re-reeving through the ratchet block in the correct direction restored the easy furling feature.
